Terrible God, that reigníst on high,
How awful is Thy thundíring hand!
Thy fiery bolts, how fierce they fly!
Nor can all earth or hell withstand.
the old rebel angels knew,
And Satan fell beneath Thy frown;
Thine arrows struck the traitor through,
And weighty vengeance sunk him down.
This Sodom felt, and feels it still,
And roars beneath thíeternal load:
ďWith endless burnings who can dwell?
Or bear the fury of a God?"
Tremble ye sinners, and submit,
Throw down your arms before His throne;
Bend your heads low beneath His feet,
Or His strong hand shall crush you down.
And ye, blessíd saints, that love Him too,
With revírence bow before His Name;
Thus all His heavínly servants do:
God is a bright and burning flame.
